Adalyn Month Twenty

How unbelievable is that title?  My little girl is nearly 2 years old.  It's so crazy to see how much she grows.  I know I say that every update but she looks like such a little girl this month instead of a baby.  In fact, I'm at this point where I don't feel like I should be calling her a baby anymore.  Wahhh!  That just means it's time to having another baby to squish on!

Stats:  Again, nothing official as your next appointment will be your 2 year check up.  There are moments when I think you're getting taller and then other moments when I look at your short legs and think, nope it was just the outfit.  I suspect you're probably right around 26 pounds at this point.  You're wearing 18 month clothes still and were just fitted for size 5w shoes.  You have the tiniest fattest feet!

Sleep Schedule:  This past month your sleep has been terrible.  For several weeks you were waking at 5:30 and wanted to be up for the day.  No matter what we did, you just didn't seem to want to sleep any later.  You've been sleeping about 9 hours plus your 2 hour nap which usually runs just after lunch.

Foods:  The rotisserie chicken has become one of your favorite meals and our best friend.  It's about the only way we can get any protein into you.  You did try lobster while on vacation, and shocker, you loved it.  Of course you do, the things you wouldn't suspect a toddler to like and you do.

Firsts:  Your first airplane ride.  Crazy, I need to provide the complete experience because it's a post in its own right.  You first vacation to Outerbanks with my side of the family.

Favorite Things:  Rocks.  Seriously, the things a kid will play with when you spend all your money on a normal toy.  You also love your play-doh still.  Your great grandma bought you your first My Little Ponies and you love those too.  You're starting to like bracelets and necklaces so it may be time to start purchasing some inexpensive jewelry.

I say this every month but I truly cannot believe how much you've changed in such a short amount of time.  Every day you're looking more and more like a little girl which melts my heart but also makes me sad because it means you're growing older.  We still have 16 years before you go off to college but I still get sad every time I think of that day so far down the road.

  1. OMG she is such a sweet little peanut!! It goes so so fast :( OUr little boy ( just turned 3) is now potty trained...and its been very emotional! LOL!!

    1. Kim, thank you so much, we think so as well. I'm trying to determine the best time to potty train but then I think you're so little, you're not ready for this.

  2. I love her little pony tails! Her hair is so cute. Thanks for linking up.

    1. That's her first single pony. It still doesn't all pull up because her head is so big but I love the single pony.

  3. My little one is almost 6 months old and I'm forever saying she's getting so big. It's amazing to me how much - and how quickly - they grow!

    p.s. Thanks for linking up for Wednesday Walkabout!
